Title: ときめきメモリアル Girl’s Side Premium ～3rd Story～
I should play kannou but my mind is distracted by this game and amnesia later （*´▽｀*). I already played the DS one and decided to try the PSP port. The story and setting are the same with DS. You (heroine) is the student of Hatabaki High School, you need 3 years to pursuit the guy you like. In PSP port they add one more guy you can pursuit, Hasumi Tatsuya.
The art and color in PSP are much better from DS, and when they talk, their head sometimes will move around to left or right lol. While I like all the guys, I don’t like the character design for Niina and Arashi (but I totally like their personality).
You will have 2 girlfriends, Karen and Miyo. Both of them are totally kind and adorable, and I am so glad there is no more love rivalry. If they are in 🙂 or higher, one of them will invite you for a double date with the 2 most guy with highest affection. In my case Karen invite the heroine, Ruka, and Tamao. Karen is totally adorable, when I choose Ruka to accompany heroine riding a Ferris Wheel, she is grinning and said なるほど. Unlike the previous series, if you choose a guy she likes, she will disappoint and get angry with heroine (*￣m￣)
She is the one who help you with fashion. If you phone her on Sunday she will give tips about fashion and she will tell you the style that the guys like. I think she is quite popular with the girls lol, she even has her own fan-club (#^.^#)
Miyo is the one who will give you information about people. She will inform the guys (or the girl) affection toward you. Miyo is really cute but she hates it if people mistake her for a child ^_^.
And you can phone Karen/Miyo to hang out together; it is good to raise their affections.
In DS it is called skinship, but since PSP don’t have a touch screen, they changed it into approach system. You can press O = smile, grinning; Triangle = touch, hold hands, square= prank, and you can use your analog to get closer and become intimate with the guy. I did it with Ruka and he started to blush, so cute（*´▽｀*). And depending how you approach the guy, you can become an angel or sweet devil. Pink feather = angel, purple feather= sweet devil.
There is a total 4 mini games, 3 for sport festival (Rolling the ball, three-legged, and ball fight) , and 1 for trip school (pillow fight). In DS, I think the easiest one is ball fight but for PSP it will be rolling the ball. You just need to roll your analog like crazy ^_^
You can freely visit the boy in real time (depending on your PSP time setting). So at 3 am, I was looking into the guys room, everyone else is sleeping but Ruka and Niina are still awake ^_^ and they are watching TV.
Ruka…. it is already 1 pm, why you are still eating breakfast (*°∀°) ?
Part-time jobs and club.
Both of it are good to increase a certain status. I choose Tennis for club and since I pursued Ruka, I pick Anneri flower shop for part time job. Ruka is there and you will get a CG scene with him later.
I am so glad they changed the system for bombing, now you can only get bomb from the guy(s) that you already date. In 1st and 2nd series, once in a month I always get the warning from the guys. Really… I didn’t date them and they started bombing me…..
Ruka is the brother of Kou, both of them are heroine’s childhood friend. Unlike previous prince, Ruka is not perfect; he is rather a troublemaker and likes to fight. His favorite word: 満足満足, and he likes to say he is a hero lol. Ruka likes to tease the heroine, he says for a white day he will give you a chuu (kiss) (≧∇≦), but in the end he says it is a joke and give her a present. And also when you got sick, Ruka will visit you and offer to feed you (*°∀°).
I really like the scene in hospital when heroine brings him a valentine chocolate. She searches him to the rooftop and he suddenly hugs her from behind (≧∇≦), totally so cute…. And they include more scenes for PSP, when the heroine is working in the Aneri flowers shop, she accidently pricked her finger on the rose’s thorn. Ruka sucks the blood from her fingers and starts talking about sleeping beauty (*°∀°), heroine is a princess and Ruka is a prince. He says the princess needs a kiss from a prince lol, but as usual he only teases her ≧∇≦.
Sugita Tomokazu ≧∇≦, I love his voice.
For the ending, I get ending 1, I don’t know the differences since I never get Ed2 but his confession is adorable. The silhouette when they kissed is totally romantic.
Overall this game is really fun to play, I recommended it if you like light romance.
PS: I never did a PVP mode so I don’t know how it is work.
